Troicki vs Dougaz (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from the Tunis challenger between Troicki (#241) and Dougaz (#570)
There is an obvious class difference here between Troicki and Dougaz, Troicki is the better player which there is no doubt about but I think its worth trying this bet with a low stake because of how awful he is playing right now. He started the season in decent fashion but he has taken plenty of losses recently that he shouldn't have, he lost to Rinderknech in Sophia Antipolis as a big favorite (almost as big as today) with 4-6 2-6 and his most recent match was a loss to Bagnis in Marrakech in two close sets. He is more unstable mentally now than ever and throws a lot of games away because of his frustration.
Dougaz is just now reaching challenger level tennis slowly, there isn't a lot for me to say about him yet, I think the fact that he is the home player will mean that he remains motivated for every point here and its not the kind of opponent Troicki should be facing in a first round challenger as Troicki expects to ease past this type of opponent and if Dougaz can return enough balls then Troicki will do the other half of the job himself by throwing unforced errors and tantrums as he has done a lot most recently.
This is mainly a bet against Troicki in his current form so it should be played with low stakes
